Default Butler basketball was the lone NCAA finalist with top Academic Progress Rate

The AP reports:

Butler didn't get its national title in Houston.

At least it can carry the torch for academic success among the best college sports teams.

On Tuesday, the NCAA released its list of academic overachievers, and Butler was the only team among those that reached the championship round in Division I football, men's basketball or women's basketball.

NCAA officials annually announce the top 10 percent of teams in each sport and all teams with perfect Academic Progress Rate scores. This year, 909 teams made the list of so-called overachievers. That's an increase of 68 from last year and nearly 150 from two years ago.

Actual scores will not be released until next week, when the NCAA will announce sanctions for teams that have consistently underperformed below the standard cutline of 925. The APR measures the classroom performance of every Division I student-athlete, composing a score for each team. It is based on data collected from 2006-07 through 2009-10.
